Style experts once decreed that we should all match our shoes to our handbags. But now, its all about layering subtly mismatched prints
In 2018, it is far more fashionable to flout style rules than follow them. You know the rules we mean: dont wear navy blue and black together; never wear more than three colours at once, dont wear black or white as a wedding guest, dont wear cream and white, ever; try to match your shoes to your handbag. In the past five years, we have had wilfully clashing colour-blocking. A fuchsia pink shirt and red trousers is now a classic colour combination for fashion editors, as acceptable as wearing black and white. We have had monotone dressing the Kim Kardashian-approved way of wearing one very specific shade, typically matching your skintone, head-to-toe. Then there is no-holds-barred clashing, with four different prints in the same outfit on purpose. Best saved for days without a hangover, when you are hoping to be snapped by a street-style photographer, or at least post a particularly memorable selfie. But the newest take on no-rules dressing? That would be matchy-mismatchy.
